How would you react if you saw someone buying a salwar suit for Rs. 35,000? Angela
would react with glee. She sells them.
Angela Pratap is an enterprising woman - with a workshop right in her residence, she has been into designing clothes since 1996. And she has no formal training in designing. She just took a fancy to it, and as the interest grew in her, started designing clothes on her own.
She holds exhibitions of her designer wear at least three times a year in Hyderabad and also at Bangalore, Nagpur and Chicago. She now designs for 'Textures' of Chennai, and also for Ramya Collections. Thanks to her contacts at Chicago, she markets her designer wear there, too.
In this 2-day exhibition, she will display her designer salwar kameez suits in cotton, silk, crepes, georgette and some chiffon, including short and long kurtaas. The dresses are embellished with hand embroidery, sequins and beadwork.
Like those of most designers, her works are rather expensive - the price ranges
between Rs. 12,000 and Rs.35,000. She also accepts orders, and designs trousseaux
too. Please contact her at 323-4379 for further details.
